RoboCop is very successful against criminals and becomes a target of supervillian Boddicker.

Stars: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O’Herlihy
Director: Paul Verhoeven

To celebrate the 30th anniversary, here are some of the curiosities about this movie.

  • It was discovered that when in full RoboCop costume, Peter Weller could not fit properly into the police car as he was too bulky. That’s why most shots of him show him exiting the car or preparing to get into it. For shots where he actually needed to be in the car, he only wore the top part of the costume and sat in his underwear. However, to maintain the illusion that RoboCop wears the entire suit while inside a car, most shots show his robotic feet exiting the car first.

TLBSPEDIA: GEORGE A. ROMERO

Romero

Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero was born on February 4 1940, in the Bronx, New York. He started out making commercials and short films before moving on to feature films. His iconic movies, including ‘Night of the Living Dead’ and ‘Day of the Dead’, he combines horror with social commentary and satire.

The son of a commercial artist, George Andrew Romero loved watching movies growing up. ‘The Tales of Hoffman’ (1951), a film adaptation of an opera, was an early influence. As a teen, he borrowed the film numerous times, using a projector to watch it at home. Romero once said that only one other person took this movie out as much as he did, and the fellow fan turned out to be Martin Scorsese.
